Bertha’s Boot Scootin’ Boogie…


Finally…I found…Bertha…a new pair of shoes yesterday…actually…they are boots…cowboy boots…she’s been wanting some for a while…but…I…didn’t think they’d be comfortable…so I hadn’t tried any on…

Instead…I kept buying little round toed flats…because…hey…everybody knows…they look so comfy…except…they really hurt my feet…I have no idea why…or…how…but…they hurt the bones on the side of my feet…and my toes slide down into them too far…and they hurt…too…

Anyway…the weather is getting cooler…and sandals are on the way out…I really needed a pair of shoes…and…I’d finally figured out…that a loafer cut…didn’t hurt my feet…that’s when I hit my favorite department store’s shoe sale…armed with an extra 20% off coupon…

I had decided on something in brown…I have something in black that I can get by with for now…I think I tried on about twenty pairs of shoes…and I found a pair that was…stylish and comfy…and a good price…but…Bertha…kept eyeing the cowboy boots…

I kept telling her…NO…they wouldn’t be comfortable…but that argument was about as successful as trying to reason with a three year-old…

Finally she reminded me…I’d never tried them on…I really didn’t know if they were comfy or not…

Okay…she got me…I pulled the sample from the shelf…and asked to try it in my size…and…eighth wonder of the world…they fit…they felt good…they looked so cute with my jeans and sweater…

They weren’t on sale…I didn’t care…I had a coupon…and…Bertha…had her boots…well…almost…she really wanted the bright turquoise ones…but…reluctantly gave in to the taupe ones that will go with most about everything…

Now…I have to wonder…she’s not gonna make me take line dancing class again…is she…

    • Cheri…I believe you are right about that! The ones I got are short…so…I may have to go for a more standard pair in the near future. Can’t wait to see your new ones!

    • No, Christy…they definitely aren’t kind! It’s been in the 80’s all week…so I haven’t worn the boots yet. It’s supposed to get cooler again this weekend…so I’ll boot it up!
